Export the layout from cadence to hfss or from hfss to cadence.

Is there anybody familiar with simulation of a layout extracted from cadence in hfss. Is there any voltage pulse generator source in hfss that we can use it with lumped port?
Any comment is appreciated,

I imported a design from cadence into hfss using GDS. Now my problem is I cannot see the coordinates of the geometric solid. Can anyone help me with this? I imported a transformer and I needed to add definitions for the silicon dioxide and substrate, which I plan to add in hfss since cadence does not do this in (...)

In fact I'm confusing when choosing between ADS, hfss and cadence Virtuoso/Eldo/Artist for the design of a VCO and next a PLL.

I have used this tool for a while,and can't say it took my breath away.
The biggest advantage is that it's an EM tool which work directly on your layout in cadence-so no need to do back and forth conversions (like say,importing to hfss or ADS is also pretty comfortable as a layout synthesis tool,as it draws spiral inductors (...)

I am trying to extract cadence inductor (UMC library) parasitics in hfss by importing gds file. After importing gds file, inductor layout is visible in hfss window with so many layers. Issue is that cadence generated 2D file and hfss want 3D file to simulate. I converted inductor 2D (...)

This is easy. Do you have the layout in cadence or as GDSII?
Here is a video that shows how to import the inductor GDSII layout into Sonnet and analyze:

I am trying a 2 turn spiral inductor and combine it with another 1 turn to make a transformer. I did a layout in cadence and imported it in hfss only to find out it is of a "Non-Model" type so I cannot change its properties for 3D EM simulation. My inquiry would be, how do you make the parallelogram box in hfss? (...)

I want to import .gds file from cadence 6.1 to hfss 10 and do some simulations. Just to make sure my gds file is ok I did import it back to cadence and I do see the same layout. But when I import the same gds file in hfss 10,I dont see anything. I am not sure what is the problem. When I look at my (...)

Do you know what files you are able to import into cadence?
For cadence RFIC, the top 3 file formats are:
ddis can use GDSII and should have no problem. Gerber is only used in PCB, and make things more complicated anyway because each layer is in a separate file.

Hi, Ramy Gad: I would suggest you to try the IE3D MM080 or IE3D MM081 from Zeland Software Inc. (where I am working). You can download the free evaluation license from . The IE3D MM08X has an interface to cadence Allegro. It allows you to automatically create full-3D IE3D models with ports defined from selected critical nets and ref

I've designed 9.5gHz boards using Altium Designer. I've also designed 20 layer boards with it. In my opinion, the layout tool one of the easiest and most versitile on the market.
As a medium priced EDA suite, it has shortcomings. The simulator is not sophisticated enough to do high frequency design. You need to use a third party tool such as

i want to add an inductor to my circuit using cadence , when i add after that for 35mH i dont know how to set the parameters.
Like when i press object prperties it shows inner radius inner width and number of turns , i dont know exactly how to match it for 35mH with this specification..
please help me

Hi for all,
I am planning to start a new design, it is about MIM capacitor for DRAM applications.
In fact, i am facing a delima :? , I can't figure out the best design flow/tools.
the project should cover all aspects of the process; mechanical structure, physical proprieties, device integration on top of substrate ..
So, In the first place, I h

is it possible to import layout directly from sonnet to cadence virtuoso........?????????
This cadence integration is not available in the free Sonnet Lite version, and the number of layers is too limited in the Lite version. You need Son
